All are welcome, including friends and guests.
Faith Friends is a gathering of women that meets once a month for six consecutive months to discuss living our faith in our daily lives. Discussion may revolve around a topical book.
On select 4th Sundays of the month, everyone is welcome to join in for the “after-party” taking place after the service and coffee time to discuss that day’s sermon subject. Questions, thoughts, open minds welcome!
During the weeks of Lent, Thursday night suppers and discussion take place in the church gathering space.
